Welcome to AJ Foreign Auto - "Excellence in Service"





It all starts with the business owner, David Button, a.k.a. our "Automotive Guru", who has 39+ years experience as a technician, an admiration for, and an unusually clear understanding of the science behind the amazing capabilities of cars and the engines that drive them, and an unstoppable "can do" attitude that is vital to the foundation of the business.


We specialize in personalized preventive maintenance, diagnostics & repairs on all foreign vehicles, but many customers bring us their domestic vehicles too. We believe in helping people understand their vehicles better, so they can make educated decisions about their vehicles care.

In 2011 we began exclusively using a new balancing system with only non-lead wheel weights.

Get the right ALIGNMENT for your vehicle with our state-of-the-art optical imaging alignment machine that uses 3D animation & cross-diagonal measurements for ultimate accuracy!


130 Cherry Street, just off Cecil A. Malone Drive, on the inlet, behind Wegman's.
